To avoid conflicts with non-compatible Exclusive messages, a specific ID
number is granted to manufacturers of MIDI instruments by the MMA or JMSC.
By agreement between the MMA and JMSC when an ID number is given, the
Exclusive format which is used under that ID number must be published within
one year. "Published", in this context, means not only utilizing the format,
but also printing the information in the product's owner's manual and/or
technical materials published by the manufacturer. This is consistent with
one of the fundamental purposes of MIDI, which is to publicize information
and foster compatibility.
